My Brother Is an Only Child – 2007 – Daniele Luchetti

Lucchetti’s best film remains The Yes Man (Portaborse, Il), but with My Brother is an Only Child, he recreates the tension in republican Italy post WW2, through his portrayal of two brothers, one a fascist the other a communist. Dramatises the delusion on both sides and how it led to “left” and “right” terrorism of the ’70s. Mario Alemi
